June, 2014: Postdoc/Visiting Scientist Position
The Seismolab has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher or visiting scientist position. The successful applicant will develop and apply full-waveform-based tomography and/or earthquake source inversion. The initial appointment is for 2 years, with a possibility of renewal or transition to a more senior researcher position, contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding. The position requires strong computational skills, familiarity with seismic data processing, and a solid background in the solution of inverse problems. To apply, please send a cover letter expressing research interests and experience, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, and the contact information for three references to: Prof. Yang Shen.
